After the prenatal testing results, parents are often in shock and not offered the option to carry to term. Wrongful life lawsuits and complications of late pregnancy termination contribute to women being advised to abort quickly when an adverse diagnosis is determined.
Why carry to term?
The decision in this situation is a deeply personal one. Studies show that women carrying to term often fare better physically and emotionally. Sharing what time you have with your baby during the pregnancy and holding your child (living or stillbirth) can bring comfort and closure in those few precious moments. Creating a birth plan can help you.
A birth plan is a step by step plan created with doctors, photographers and others to ensure your wishes are followed as you continue through the pregnancy and delivery. This removes much of the uncertainty and allows you to better prepare for the moments shared with your baby.
